Abstract (en)

A facsimile machine for single sheets comprises an ink-jet printing head (54) and a line feed device (41) mounted upstream of the printing line (59) to make the sheet (50) advance incrementally. A technical problem of the machine is that of printing adjacent to a trailing edge of the sheet, and that it should be of relatively low cost. An extraction mechanism (82) is provided, having driven rollers (80,85) which may be activated from a state of disengagement with a partially printed sheet to a state of engagement with the sheet. The sheet is drawn forward sufficiently to enable the head to print lines adjacent to the trailing edge of the sheet. The extraction mechanism is actuated when a given reference position of the sheet with respect to the head is detected. A single service motor (84) and suitable cam means (86) drive the special mechanisms of the machine. <IMAGE>
